Default Big Brother UK 17 - General Discussion Thread



This is just a thread for us to discuss news about the series, our opinions about the series once it airs etc. This is NOT an episode discussion thread, it's simply just a thread for us to discuss our opinions about the series, talk about the latest news etc.

Thought it would be a good idea to make it since often many threads are made throughout the series which make the flow of discussion harder to follow in multiple different threads, and it's a way of keeping series information organised as well as talking about the series itself with other members. Plus we're supposedly getting some news revealed about the series tomorrow/Wednesday according to Rylan.

What we know so far:

For people to discuss EVERYTHING without being told they're going off topic in threads dedicated to specific things.

Is it meant to stop threads being made for different things and just keep it all in here?

That's why I made it tbh - especially since most of the time it's hard to say your opinions on individual housemates unless you make a thread for it - and if it's a negative opinion you can't post it in their fanclub etc.

Basically it's a thread that Jason can derail freely and won't be told off for it

No, obviously you're gonna make House Pic threads, noms threads etc. It's just for a general discussion of the series i.e. things you wanna say about the series but it's not worth making an entire thread over just to get your opinion across.

No sign of theme tagline this year (i.e. S&L/Power Trip/Timebomb). Did they scrap it or do they usually reveal it in PR/teasers one week before? I can't remember from previous years.
"The game is changing" doesn't count...
This time they have a big change and a new game so I guess they don't need to classify it that obvious.

I can't believe it's the first series since 2012 without a theme

I love this idea to have a general thread, like if there's a small question you have to ask you can just post in here

Great thinking, Hayden

I hope we get a varied cast in regard to ethnicity, sexuality, etc.

I know it shouldn't matter because a good housemate is a good housemate regardless of any personal attributes, but I personally would find it quite nice if Britain was truely reflected in an accurate way based on a diverse bunch of housemates.

Tbh idc if we have an ethnically diverse cast or not as long as it's a good bunch of housemates who are capable of carrying the series themselves without the producer's constant need to meddle and engineer conflict then I'll be happy. BB13 had that.

Yeah I agree - the last few series haven't really been that reflective of the UK at all imo
